Hackensaw Boys
Hackensaw Boys
For almost two decades, the Hackensaw Boys have plowed the asphalt bringing their raw, gritty American vernacular sounds to the music halls and streets across the world. Twenty years later, the group continues their burning hot vision of American roots music into a new age, fueled as much by a rowdy punk spirit as by the traditional masters that first inspired them.

The music began in 1999 when four friends from Virginia’s beautiful Shenandoah Valley found their collective ways to the roots music hub of Charlottesville. They didn’t waste time getting going, playing a show on the street the day of their first practice. The group let the good times roll and started adding like-minded people until their ranks reached twelve players for their first US tour. As with the folk and punk traditions which form the foundation of their sound, they’ve always operated more as a collective than a band. All said, twenty-eight members have cycled through the group—you never quite know who might sit in as a guest on any given night.

Helmed by founding member David Sickmen, the Hackensaw Boys have always had more in common with bands like The Clash, who celebrated the working class roots of their own music, than they did with an overly-polished Nashville mainstream. As evidenced in the Hackensaws’ history, their music fit as easily backing Charlie Louvin as it did in backstage jams on tour with Modest Mouse and the Flaming Lips.

With their most recent release, a fresh take on Blaze Foley’s “Oval Room,” these roots music stalwarts speak directly to America's political unrest. Written and recorded by Foley in the 1980s, the song recalls his list of grievances with the Reagan presidency: "Everywhere he goes, make the people mad / Makes the poor man beg, and the rich man glad." The band was excited to resurrect this protest gem—which was recorded by their friend Thomas Olivier at Studio Americain in Amsterdam—as the words seem more timely than ever.
Treehouse Sanctum

Driving, groove-filled rhythms and intricately layered, nuanced instrumentation create a lush and dynamic atmosphere for stories of heroism, love, hope and faith. Their sophomore album, ​Vivere​, which means “to live” in Latin, was released May 5, 2017. It was engineered & co-produced by Grammy-nominated engineer, Nick Sullivan, and mastered by Grammy award winner Jonathan Russell in Nashville, Tennessee. ​
Wolf Van Elfmand
Wolf Van Elfmand
Wolf van Elfmand is a songwriter and singer based in Denver, CO. Wolf has released 3 full length albums: "Magic to the Lonely," "Wolf Sings," and "The Death of," which span from finger-picking blues to eerie operatic compositions. His latest EP, "Real Wolf" dives deeper into the country genre and widens his repertoire of captivating storytelling. Quirky songs are enhanced by compelling lyrics, witty banter, and disarming charm. Wolf maintains a truly unique style in songwriting while continuing to pay homage to American classics such as Randy Newman, Roger Miller and Mississippi John Hurt.
